    Anyone got some Hamper Ideas???

    Hi,
    We've decided on doing a hamper for my partners grandparents.
    Ive thought of chocolate, jams, marmelade, honey etc,

    Does anyone have any ideas of some nice touches of other things to add to it?

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Thanks

    Do you have kids ? home made fudge or peppermintcreams would be a nice touch.

    sorry should have said made by the kids if you have any.

    You could put some mini christmas crackers in there x maybe some tea bags or somthing x

    Have a look on some web sites that sell these (very overpriced) and you might get a few ideas. Good for you for doing your own:)

    Great idea, thanks alot.

    Anyone got any ideas where to get a basket/box for the hamper!
    Thanks

    If you have a Home Bargains near you i noticed they had hamper baskets in the other day. Looked quite nice lined ones.

    Things to add... nice bottle of wine with a couple of fancy wine glasses, family photo, shortbread biscuits, mince pies, truffles, nuts, english tea - you can get fancy looking packets of most of these.

    I always find homemade biscuits/cakes etc go down well if you can bake

    Cheese board & a selection of crackers?

    Slippers!! old folk like slippers hehe

    Maybe a book/cd if they are into that sort of thing/

    i made some hampers last year - i went into marks and spencer and got for each one a jar of coffee or tea bags, special jam, small box of biscuits, small box of sweets, box of cakes and a bottle of bucks fizz - not so flush this year as i have more staff so will probably go with tesco finest items this time

    Anyone have any other ideas where to buy a basket to put stuff in or something else i could use??
    Thanks

    Licquer chocolates, miniature bottle of spirits, sugared almonds, jellies,ginger in syrup, exotic tin of fruit, a jackinabox, for a laugh

    Neil, how about covering a cardboard box with festive wrap or silver foil

    Fantastic, thinking of doing this for my parents this year, going to use some of the suggestions from the thread, i think they look great and don't cost too much, I think people really appreciate the effort you put in too

    I often do this for someone I know who is always short of money.
    Christmas in a box kind of thing. What I include depends on when I am likely to deliver it. For instance you could include meat items if you will be delivering it personally and at a date when there is still time to prepare the food for festivities.

    Decorate the container you use with a christmasey wrapping just as an added touch. You can add whatever you like aimed at the person you are giving it to.
